Make Like it's Yours begins from two considerations of hospitality: Jean Genet’s instruction that a guest must steal from their host, to break the bond of debt through a transgression; and Derrida’s 1996 lectures on hospitality, "Foreigner Question" and "Step of Hospitality/No Hospitality”.

The piece itself will be a series of experiments in radical hospitality, with a form inspired by 1980’s avant-garde art on T.V. shows like KÄ™stutis Nakas, Your Program of Programs’, and Christoph Schlingenseif’s U3000 which was broadcast from the Berlin subway.
